Poem | A Night’s Prayer | Ammar AlShukry

“Do you belittle du’a and discount it

While not knowing what the prayer accomplishes

The arrows of the night do not miss their target

    Thank you brother Ammar. That was beautiful ma-sha-Allah. I really love the way you worked the Quranic verses and dua’s into the poem, and the English captions that were added helped tremendously as well.

    I hear the passion for the people, and the pure reliance on Allah.

    This was awesome, thank you MM!

    At the risk of seeming uncultured and lacking in creativity, I have to ask: what is the analogy between arrows and du`a? What is the connection between the arrows having a “span” and our du`a? Someone enlighten me por favor.
